Just another day - August 9th, 2011

So I wouldn't say that I have this stay at home mom thing down yet, but I'm getting there. I think I'm working too hard though. haha! I am working very hard when RoBet naps, and when she is content with her toys too. I am mostly sorting, organizing, and generally getting the house up to a higher standard of organization for now. Luckily, I haven't had to do any 'standard' cleaning yet, meaning that all of my energy could be spent on 1. catching up on undone chores (like half a dozen extra loads of laundry) and 2. special projects (thanks Mom for making that happen!). I have begun to clean out the two desks in our loft. We are going to condense down to the one smaller desk and get rid of the bulky old computer desk. It's one of those $99 sauder wood contraptions that really isn't meant to be moved at all without falling apart. Amazingly it has made the journey from my first apartment after college to my husband's first house, our second beautiful house that we left last year, and to our current home. I'm ready to say goodbye though without mourning it. Hopefully someone on Freecycle is interested in coming to get it and help my husband get it out of the loft. I plan for that to be gone by the end of this week. Then I will begin removing all of the books from the bookshelves in the large guest bedroom. Once the shelves are empty, we will move them into the loft. They won't all fit, and I'm not sure how they will look there at all. Time will tell, but this is really the best solution for our 'library'. There's actually a little nook in the banisters where we plan on putting a recliner from the guest room too. The second recliner and rocking chair will no longer have a home soon though. Again, hopefully Freecycle can help with that. I figure that the book and shelf moving will take me at least through next week, probably even the week after that. Once that is done, I will have to clean out the closet in that guest room. The small guest room closet is already crammed with bins of baby clothes, extra blankets, pillows, sheets, and our empty luggage. So, I'm not sure where the extra baby stuff and my scrapbooking stuff will go. Again, time will tell. heh. Once all of this is done, we will begin shopping for 'big girl' furniture of RoBet. *sniff* It tears me up just thinking about it. But we want her to be transitioned to a bed by the time that baby #2 comes along, so we've got to get the room ready! I don't know what my next project will be once this is done, but I think it will take me long enough to complete that I will think of something new by the time it becomes an issue. Hopefully I'll be pregnant by then, and my next project will be growing a kiddo!

Hey hey, good news - the woman I told you about earlier who was switching from IUI to IVF just had a bit of success. She had 2 excellent embryos and 3 fair embryos. I thought of you when she posted her exciting development, and I wanted to offer you a little bit of anecdotal hope.

Hope you and Kiddo are having a blast together. :)

That is good news! I hope we have good results too! This week has been nice with RoBet, but it still feels so strange. After working for the last 10 years, not having to get up and go to work in the morning feels both good and weird. But yesterday I was pushing RoBet in the swing for an hour and she loved it - what a way to spend a beautiful morning!
